Guest Posted April 4, 2015 Share Posted April 4, 2015 (edited) Although both men in this story are deceased, I will not mention any names or the make of car. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I have.I purchased an antique car sometime back, and included with the car was a folder full of various documents - the usual invoices, etc. Included in the folder was the following handwritten letter from a previous owner to his prospective purchaser:"Here are some pictures of my car. As you can see, this car is for a big boy - not a Model A or T type of guy - and not for a "minor leaguer."The car is way under priced at $38,000 - it should be around $75,000 in its' premium condition. As you can see, it is a very fine car, and 100% all there.I have another man who is very serious, and he is coming to see it. If YOU are serious, it's going to take at least $36,500, or you can just look at the pictures. It's going to take a big boy for this one to be sitting in their garage. Thanks for your interest."The best part is that there were also some insurance documents in the folder that showed that at that exact time, the prospective purchaser owned.......... you guessed it! a Model A........ AND a Model T !!!! Furthermore, the purchaser was FAR from being a "minor leaguer." (whatever that was supposed to mean) He was a self made multi -millionaire founder of a large corporation. He must have had a great sense of humor, as he not only bought the car, but retained the above letter. I purchased the car from a dealer who had purchased it from his estate.Although the above method resulted in a successful transaction, I would submit that it is most likely not the optimal approach.
